bob mcdonnell who spent a lifetime as an antiabortion activist and his attorney general who also spent a lifetime as an antiabortion activist, these two aggressively have engineered a meeting of the state's health board that happened today. they aggressively engineered that meeting toward a decision that could have the effect of shutting down most of the abortion clinics in virginia. last year, bob mcdonnell signed a new law calling for special regulations just for abortion clinics. targeted regulations designed to make it economically impossible to operate an abortion clinic in the state of virginia. it's the same thing the republicans did in mississippi this year. these are called trap laws. targeted regulations. these do not apply to any other form of medical facility at all. the law would not apply for dental surgeons or for outpatient plastic surgery clinics. it's just for abortion clinics and it's very obviously designed to shut them down and it is expected to shut down a majority of abortion clinics in the state. informed estimates are it could shut down at least is15 of v

governor in the state, bob mcdonnell. virginia voters opposed that law by 17 points. the anti-abortion crusade that has been undertaken this year by republican-led state government in virginia is not popular in virginia. and now virginia women are prepared to take it out on the presidency, right? they're planning to vote against the republicans' candidate for president in their state by 18 points. and that was the context for a really important move made by virginia's republican attorney general this week, a move that could be important for the presidential race in virginia. this week the attorney general certified a new set of regulations targeted only at abortion clinics in the united states. these rules are not just for oral surgeons or plastic surgery centers, just targeting abortion providers. it's red tape that is specifically designed to make it economically impossible to operate an abortion clinic in virginia. that's what's expected to happen in the state. most of the state's abortion clinics are in danger of being closed once these new rules go into effect. the state's health

the existing clinics in the state. and a couple of weeks ago the health board did what bob mcdonnell and ken threatened them to do. and now these new rules are expected to cause most of virginia's 20 abortion clinics to close their doors. bob mcdonnell this week denied that the regulations are designed to shut down clinics. he said that the new rules are just going to contribute to the expense of operating an abortion clinic calling it, quote, a cost issue. so technically he wants you to know he's not just shutting down the clinics, he's just making it prohibitively expensive to operate one. same diff, right? and if the clinics shut down because bob mcdonnell made it too expensive to operate in his state, i guess abortion access wasn't meant to be in virginia. we've seen the same thing in mississippi, the governor there signed a new law, had the same approach. targeting the one remaining single abortion clinic in mississippi for special regulation. here what's he said about that. >> i think it's historic that today you see the first step in a movement i believe to do what we campaigned o
